WELCOME TO THE MCCHORD PIPELINE CO. WEBSITE
The McChord Pipeline Co. is proud to be the primary supplier of jet fuel to McChord Air Force Base. The pipeline is a single 6-inch diameter, 14.25-mile long pipeline that originates in the U.S. Oil & Refining Co. refinery, located in the Tacoma Tide Flats, and terminates at storage tanks located on the Base. This pipeline transports JP-8, a kerosene-based jet fuel, as its sole product. For a map of the pipeline route see the map section on this website.
The pipeline was constructed in 1966 and was operated by Buckeye Pipeline Company from 1967 until 1996 when it was purchased by U.S. Oil & Refining Co. McChord Pipeline Co. is a wholly owned subsidiary of and is operated by U.S. Oil & Refining Co. The McChord Pipeline is an intrastate pipeline.
The Washington Utilities & Transportation Commission has primary jurisdictional authority for pipeline operation in the State of Washington. We have successfully completed multiple audits by the Commission of our operation.
